Dreaming of Space Travel

Today on the Space Log, we’re featuring the artwork of a very talented kid. Matteo Lopez’ Google Doodle, shown above, was the winner in a nationwide contest hosted by the well-known search engine. Doodle 4 Google is a competition where students in grades K-12 are invited to share their talent through art and compete to redesign the Google logo. The theme of the contest was “What I’d like to do someday.”

Clearly Matteo is a space fan and would like to visit space. Maybe he’ll have the chance one day! In addition to bragging rights and having his artwork featured on the Google homepage for millions to see, he also won a $15,000 college scholarship and a technology grant for his school.

Congratulations Matteo! We think your design is pretty special and hopefully one day, we’ll hear about you traveling to space! Maybe we’ll even write about it on the Space Log! If you’d like to participate in the contest, check out this link…just be sure to get a grown-up’s permission. Everybody have a safe & fun weekend from your friends at Janet’s Planet!
